Virtual currency is an unregulated digital money that is issued and controlled by the developers and used by specific virtual communities. These currencies are used to purchase real-world services and goods, but do not have a valid tender. In addition, these offer a convenient way to perform transitions without the involvement of banks and provide worldwide financial integration.
Increase in proliferation of malicious software and recognition of virtual currencies by the developed countries drive the market. However, security issues and lack of financial measures in standardizing the virtual currencies restrain this growth.
